I am so extremely proud of this project!  I bought this canvas and painted the background a few weeks ago.  I had every intention of using this cool stencil of a dandelion silhouette to paint the dandelion on there.  But... I finally got tired of trying to get to the print shop to blow up the silhouette just right and when I started thinking of what a pain in the you know what it would be to actually cut out the stencil and then get it on there just right.... and yes, I am usually a perfectionist.. so, I knew I would go nuts the second I messed up.. and I also knew that I would most definetly mess up!  Lol.. breathe, Amy.. so, I just picked up a brush and some pretty  pink paint and went at it on my own.  I figured I could always paint back over it with the aqua if it looked too bad.  Well, low and behold.. hope I spelled that right... it didn't turn out too shabby!  Keep in mind, people, I have never painted anything before in my life.. well, except for a few tables and a couple of bar stools lol.  Anyways, I really hope that you-all like it.  I really do love it!







Thanks!

Beautiful!  The color combination is very charming, and I love how it matches your curtains and side table perfectly Smiley along with the super cute doggie (is it a maltipoo?)
